Taiwan raises fines for gender discrimination in workplace
Another 4.7 percent consider gender a factor in deciding on pay raises, the poll found.
Women's rights activist Tsai Wan-fen said gender stereotyping remains a serious problem among Taiwanese employers and that increasing the related penalties will help prevent discriminatory practices.
She also urged the government to provide friendlier channels for victims to file complaints, so that they would be encouraged to fight for their rights.
